Today, we are pleased to feature our guest photographer, Stuart Thurlkill of Eyes 2 See Photography. Stuart is an important talent in Arizona, and a well-known and respected figure in the Arizona wedding community. Stuart is a friendly, caring individual with much to share. His photography reflects the moments he sees through his sensitive and unique perspective. His eyes see what many people never notice. We love these beautiful images of an intimate wedding Stuart captured at Seven Canyons Golf Club in Sedona, Arizona. We hope you enjoy these lovely images as much as we do. The beautiful flowers are by Events By Show Stoppers.
We found this article on the Pink Cloud 9 Wedding Blog this morning that features two rose petal carpets designs by Events By Show Stoppers. Congratulations to Show Stoppers for their innovative and trend setting designs!
When thinking about flower petals and weddings, do the following images come to mind? The iconic fluffy dress-clad tot, haphazardly sprinkling them from her flower girl basket to the oohs and ahhs of the crowd, a heart-shape pile adorning the honeymooners’ bed or perhaps a few in a vase surrounding a floating votive. If you answered yes to any of the above, you may just need a little dose of inspiration straight from the PC9 Pro vault.
While you may have fond memories or classic notions surrounding flower petal decor, many do not, and see it instead as a tired and outdated tradition. Enter the flower petal redux: new, modern and innovative ways to use flower petals that incorporate that old school feeling without sacrificing style. Check out some of out favorite new ways to use mother nature’s confetti.
1. Modern petal aisle
Scatter petals in an ombre palette on either side of your aisle, or create a full, lush aisle for a dramatic effect. Try color blocking for a clean modern feel.
2. Petal rug
We love this image of this navajo-inpsired rug created completely from flower petals. Recreate any vintage-inspired pattern with different color petals to create a stunning setting for your ceremony of reception.
